List of social fraternities and sororities

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Social or general fraternities and sororities, in the North American fraternity system, are those that do not promote a particular profession (as professional fraternities are) or discipline (such as service fraternities and sororities). Instead, their primary purposes are often stated as the development of character, literary or leadership ability, or a more simple social purpose.

Fraternity is usually understood to mean a social organization composed only of men, and sorority one of women; co-ed groups are usually called "co-ed fraternities." Traditionally these organizations have names consisting of three or occasionally two, and rarely four, letters of the Greek alphabet, leading to their being referred to informally in various contexts as being "Greek." For the purposes of this article, national also includes international organizations, and local refers to organizations that are either composed of only one chapter, or are extremely limited in geographic and chapter roll size.


Due to the large number of Greek organizations, and the confusion that derives from the use of combined Greek letters in predominantly English-speaking nations, many organizations are often informally better-known by their nicknames, than by their Greek letters. These nicknames usually follow certain patterns:
